Set right near waterfalls, this lodge is perfect. The rooms are clean with new bed linen and decent lighting you can easily read by. The food at dinner was very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast less good. Any comments about poor accommodation must be referring to the backpackers rooms across the river and owned by Tadlo. As for the adverse comments about the treatment of the elephants, we've never seen more chilled and happy elephants brought down morning and evening for their bath. This lodge is really super.
